Access to free online workshops for partners of those serving in the RAF to help them overcome employment challenges and improve their overall wellbeing.
Online support for families
Our free online platform, Building Stronger Families, provides information, guidance and tools for dealing with a range of family and relationship matters.
We have partnered with Relate to offer free and confidential family counselling.
Breaks for serving families
Subsidised holiday breaks in popular locations across the UK for serving RAF.
We offer free and confidential relationship counselling and mediation through Relate.
How we helped Sam and Caroline
Sam and his long-term partner, Caroline, who – like many couples in today's age – had children to consider from previous relationships, reached out to Relate for some counselling sessions when they felt new pressures arise from moving in together, closer to Sam's station.
